A leader of the Green Party of Nigeria in Kogi State, Citizen Goodman Umar Akwu has declared that the days of the present administration in the state are numbered, boasting that governor Yahaya Bello would be sent packing after the forthcoming gubernatorial election.
Speaking at the stakeholders’ meeting of the party in Lokoja, Akwu insisted that the fortunes of the state has nosedived under the current administration in the state, alleging that workers are dying in droves due to non-payment of salaries.
He noted that the leadership of the All Progressives Congress was not fair to the people of the state by imposing governor Bello on them after the death of late Prince Abubakar Audu, the candidate of the party in the last governorship poll, describing the action as wicked and most unfortunate.
Akwu, who was the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance in the 2015 election, further posited that the judiciary, rather than doing the needful, dashed the hope of the people by endorsing the injustice done to them, declaring the emergence of the governor as legal.
He stressed that aside nonpayment of salaries, Governor Bello was busy chasing shadows rather than settling down to confront the challenges of governance, saying after two years in office, no meaningful development has taken place under the present administration.
The chieftain of GPN, therefore, expressed confidence in the ability of the electorates to put an end to the anti people government of Alhaji Yahaya Bello which he alleged, has brought hunger, poverty and deaths to the people.
He emphasized the need for the people of the state to work together, irrespective of party leanings, so as to realize the Kogi of our dream, rather than pursuing selfish interests, noting that the ugly trend can still be turned around.
According to him, it is only when the state is delivered from the present set of leaders that things can change for the better, even as he advised those yet to collect their voter’s cards to do so in view of the challenges ahead.
